    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    My dear Comte, that is the fastest rowing I ever did see my friend. How did you train your boat crew?

    Next on this list will be the missing yearly top poster awards which are missing. These may take some time longer because there are many more posts to sort through than started threads.

    It's nice that I earned my first reputation points from building HMS Indefatigable, a heavy frigate, from the British 74 and now got over 500 for rebuilding heavy frigates. I have closed the circle...
